Koibito is a multi-instrumental duo based in Long Beach, California.

 

Lush, hard-hitting beat production anchors their experimental composition, while textured guitar loops and off-kilter flute melodies transform the ambient undertones into cinematic soundscapes.

 

Formed in 2017, Koibito ("lover" in Japanese) is the lovechild of producer Abbyss, a member of the Long Beach beat collective GRN+GLD, and Onu, a multi-instrumentalist and former frontwoman of the psychedelic rock band King Kang. The project originates from their ten-day journey through Tokyo and the countryside of Fujikawaguchiko last fall.

 

The duo released their debut EP Elian in January 2018 and has covered a lot of ground since, playing across Southern California and the Pacific Northwest. They have performed on Dublab, Music Tastes Good Festival, Hakuna CBD stage at Lightning in a Bottle, Superchief Gallery and many more DIY venues in the greater Los Angeles area. Their dynamic performances allow them to share a bill with heavy metal bands just as naturally as they would with solo beatmakers.

 

Koibito is currently working on a full-length release, slated for spring 2019.
